Look, it doesn’t make sense. There may not even be any science to back it up. But for some reason stuff we hated drinking as kids now have become brunch go-tos.

Clamato

Tomato, lime and clam – together at last #clamato

Let’s just say that tomato, lime and clam juice are an acquired taste or maybe we had to have a cruda to really appreciate the flavor. Can you even remember life before micheladas?

Café

Since we can't buy it here we have to make our own #CaféCubano #delicious #missingmiami #goodmorning

We loved café con leche with tons of sugar, but café by itself??? These days, its the fuel that gives us life in the morning.

Beer

Eww, if we took a swig when it was anything less than ice cold it pretty much tasted like piss and smelled like it too. But don’t get me started on how much we love it now.

Michelada

If beer tasted like piss, this tasted like piss with chile. Now it’s a favorite.

Fruit punch that’s what we really wanted as a kid, not the wine-o version. Today we turn to this when we’re feeling sassy ?.

We never understood why adults would ruin a perfectly good Coke by pouring rum in it… Until we grew up and realized everything is better when spiked.

Margarita

A frozen margarita made us think it was going to taste like a slushie, but it so did not… It’s better.

Kahlua con Leche

Kahlua Con Leche is my favorite! ❤? @aleydaisela #kahluaconleche #myfavorite

It’s literally salsa. We didn’t understand why people called this soup. It’s pretty much a V8 or Clamato without the clams. Ugh, but it’s soooo good.

Mangonada

Mangonadas are like a party in our mouth now, but as a kid they were so damn spicy.

Paloma

All you wanted was the Squirt or Peñafiel, but that tequila ruined it… until we were of age. Now we’re obsessed with these in their cantarito.
